>regarding the discussion about the change of times in peripheral ports, but looking a bit in the opposite direction: has anybody heard of a possibility to integrate USB support into computers with sBus yet, be it commercially available or as a homebrew project?
>Background is, I saw some guys at VCF Europe one year who have built a cartridge incorporating a USB host adaptor for one of those really old (pre-ST!) ATARI computers and after doing some tinkering with Sun OBP and FCode stuff recently, I figured it would probably not be too difficult from the firmware side at least. OTOH, I've got no idea yet how complicated the physical sBus implementation is...
What about a USB PCMCIA card stuffed in an SBUS PCMCIA adapter? That would give you a hardware connection that would need a bit of software "glue" to make it work...
